Umojami, Africa’s creative social media platform has gone operational. The one-of-a-kind social media community connects creators and Africa’s artisans and inventors.
The app goes beyond linking up people to providing them an avenue to share their work of arts, photography, ideas, and software among others.
“It is a new form of social media, which is not just about people sharing stuff, it is one that rewards creativity and ensures that all creators ranging from doctors, musical artists to farmers can reap immediate benefits from their work,” the developers say.
Umojami, a community that empowers
Umojami is not just a social media platform but also a space for Africans with creative ideas to share information and creative ideas while having fun.
This can come from any field of life, experience, or place. Developers of the app believe we can better understand and grow collectively as a people if we share ideas that empower us from different communities, cities, countries, and the African continent as a whole.
Posting an idea
With Umojami , you can post a creative idea or share creative information or start a creative conversation.
For such a piece of information to be considered “creative”, developers say it must be above 280 words.
Such creative posts are rewarded in “Cowrees”
Cowrees rewards are earned by posting a creative idea, commenting, reacting to a comment and posting a story.
